Human Trafficking, Organized Christianity and NWO


Resist NWO

Intro to ‘Human Trafficking, Organized Christianity and NWO

Edited by John R. Houk

Yurki posts comment to NCCR post “Equal Rights or Might is Right?” That post is by Shamim Masih, a Christian Rights Activist residing in Pakistan exposing the plight and discrimination against Christians in that Sunni Muslim nation.

 

Yurki’s comment begins human rights. Specifically looking at Human Trafficking as a conspiracy involving the British monarch, the Canadian government (Hello Royale Canadian Mounted Police), Native American tribal elites and the Provincial government of British Columbia with a smattering of American and Canadian organized crime.

 

The last part of Yurki’s post deals with a New World Order conspiracy through the eyes of the End of Days (aka the Last Days, the Apocalypse, End Times, etc.). This combines aspects of atheism, humanism, communism, godless liberal collectivists, globalists, neo-conservative fascists, New Age religion, Islam and Satanism. Yurki (and many others) view this amalgam of conspirators as being molded into mainstream thought patterns to the enigmatic goals of the world’s global elites.

 

The conspiracy theory in this post that I have a problem with is the concept that the 9/11 Islamic attack on American soil under the direction of the Bush Administration to create a reason to acquire Iraqi oil. My difficulty is warped manipulation of known data to fit a neo-fascist design of conquest with finger pointing at Neoconservatism. There simply is no reasonable line-up of data with the accusative storyline. The closest I will acknowledge is a failure of Intelligence cooperation early for America to get caught with its pants down. Then later with Saddam Hussein beginning to focus his conquest agenda from Iran to Sunni Muslim oil nations beginning with Kuwait. Using a domino construct the next in line would have been Saudi Arabia and the Saudi Peninsula oil rich Emirates. All this under the propaganda of Arab unity to eradicate Israel for the sake of the Arabs who manufactured a non-existent nationality of Palestinians.

 

Suffice it to say I absolutely do not subscribe to 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.

Queen Elizabeth Found Guilty in Missing Children Case — Whistle Blowers Incarcerated, While She is Free

 

– In the second week of May 2014, British soldier Vivian Cunningham was drugged and institutionalized against his will. Apparently, his “crime” on May 6 was daring to ask superiors about Queen Elizabeth’s outstanding arrest warrant.

 

The order to arrest Queen Elizabeth was issued in 2013 by six judges of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels.

 

After nearly a year of litigation, Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Phillip, were found guilty in the disappearance of ten native children from the Catholic-run Kamloops residential school in British Columbia. Grieving parents haven’t seen their children since they left for a picnic with the Royal couple on Oct. 10 1964. –

 

– Regiment soldier Cunningham had innocently questioned a senior officer about Queen Elizabeth’s arrest warrant, only to be committed to a mental care unit in Stafford England.

 

He was injected with an atypical anti-psychotic drug olanzapine under orders of Captain Murrell and Doctors Khan and Sema. The soldier was committed for six months to the St. George Hospital Psychiatric Unit with a “diagnosis” of suffering from an acute psychotic episode.

 

In April, a second international trial began in Brussels on global elite members of the Ninth Circle Satanic Cult.

 

A court document had been filed indicating that in Jan. 2012 UK Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby acted under the direction of Queen Elizabeth to destroy forensic remains of a Ninth Circle Satanic Cult child homicide. Two eyewitnesses have testified that as children they were present during this same murder of a native child. –

What is The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State? (ITCCS)

 

The ITCCS was formed in May of 2010 at a closed meeting of survivors of church and state terror in Dublin, Ireland. The event was initiated by Nobel Prize Nominee Reverend Kevin Annett of Canada and members of Irish survivors’ groups.

 

The foundational purpose of the ITCCS is to unite survivors of genocide and child torture across borders, and to mount a broad political, spiritual and legal movement to disestablish the Vatican and other churches and governments responsible for historic and ongoing crimes against children and humanity.

 

The original ITCCS federation was composed of groups from Ireland, England, the United States, Canada and Italy, including the Templemore Forgotten Victims (Antrim, Ireland), the Friends and Relatives of the Disappeared (Canada), and United Against Church Terror (USA). By September, 2013, ITCCS had spread to twenty six countries and over fifty affiliated groups. Its work is translated into thirteen languages. Its affiliates include the prestigious cult ritual and abuse survivors’ organizations SMART of the United States, and Rete L’Abuso in Savona, Italy.

 

The ITCCS operates from an undisclosed central headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, and from regional offices in Vancouver, New York, Dublin, London and Paris. ITCCS officers and their legal and political advisers generally retain their anonymity for reasons of security and safety. However, the General Field Secretary for North America and Western Europe is Kevin Annett. Other officers include Rev. Joshua Lemmens, Steve Finney and Amy Smart of Canada, Dr. George Dufort of Belgium, Rev. Ciaran Ui Niall of Ireland, and Dr. Colia Clark of New York City.

 

In September, 2012, the ITCCS established a legal arm, The International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ), composed of accredited jurists and lawyers from Belgium, England and the United States. in February, 2013, the ICLCJ successfully prosecuted and convicted former Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, for Crimes against Humanity in Canada, along with Elizabeth Windsor, Queen of England, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and 27 other officials of church and state. (See the link to the court evidence in this case at http://itccs.org) Pope Benedict and senior Vatican Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone both resigned from their offices soon after being prosecuted in this ICLCJ indictment.

The New World Order

 

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” – Psalm 2:1-3

 

As the 20th-century idols of atheism, humanism and communism have become mainstream and now accepted by most, we are now moving to a contest for the souls and minds of Americans where we now face formidable opponents in godless liberal collectivists, globalists, neo-conservative fascists, New Age religion, Islam and Satanism.
No longer are we only threatened from without by a group of balding hard-line Communists – we are now threatened from within – by a group of intelligent, well-dressed globalists who are convincing America and the nations of the world that the only way to lasting world peace is the establishment of a … “New World Order.”

 

Saul Alinsky put it this way,

 

“True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.”

 

Thousands of years earlier, Roman philosopher and politician Cicero, wrote of his understanding of the process,

 

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” – Cicero, 42 B.C.

 

The most malevolent and ruthless power is that over the free human mind: if one controls how one thinks, they control the individual itself.” (New Eugenics and the Rise of the Global Scientific Dictatorship)

 

Today we are in the midst of a revolution, not one fought on the streets with bullets, but one you might call a war for the mind. It’s a war being waged for the hearts and minds of people with the end game being submission or death. It’s the same battle that has waged for centuries and will eventually climax with the appearance of the antichrist.

 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:2

 

Imagine

 

“John Lennon came up with the consummate creedal statement and description of what a New World Order would be like in his famous song, “Imagine.” Lennon entreats the world to imagine with him no heaven, no countries, all people living in peace as one brotherhood of man, with the final and only option if it is to survive, a world united as one.” (Tal Brooke, When The World Will Be As One, pg. 12)

The War on Terrorism

 

Shortly after the events of 9/11, the Bush administration announced a “War on Terrorism”, and within weeks, Americans saw many of their constitutional guarantees of freedom stripped away by the Patriot Act and Military Commissions Act with their plethora of legislative changes which significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies in the United States.

These Acts did not, however, provide for the system of checks and balances that traditionally safeguards civil liberties in the face of such legislation. Many of the provisions of these tyranical [sic] Acts relating to electronic surveillance were actually proposed before September 11th, and were subject to much criticism and debate. Following 9/11, criticism and debate was squelched in favor of “protecting America.”

 

Was 9/11 an Inside Job?
How fortunate for the U.S. government that just when they are planning to invade another country, for the express purpose of removing that government, a convenient “terrorist” attack occurs to anger Americans into support for an invasion. “To be truthful about it, there was no way we could have got the public consent to have suddenly launched a campaign on Afghanistan but for what happened on September 11.” Tony Blair. July 17, 2002 [Guardian]

 

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”. – Josef Stalin

 

While I don’t believe that the United States government as a whole was behind the 9/11 catastrophe, I do believe the evidence shows there was a small subset of powerful and influential people within the U.S. government orchestrating the event.

Whether the U.S. government had any direct involvement, the evidence shows US authorities certainly did little or nothing to pre-empt the events of 9/11. It is known that at least 11 countries provided advance warning to the US of the 9/11 attacks. Two senior Mossad experts were sent to Washington in August 2001 to alert the CIA and FBI to a cell of 200 terrorists said to be preparing a big operation (Daily Telegraph, September 16 2001). The list they provided included the names of four of the alleged 9/11 hijackers, none of whom was arrested. It had been known as early as 1996 that there were plans to hit Washington targets with airplanes. Then in 1999 a US national intelligence council report noted that “al-Qaida suicide bombers could crash-land an aircraft packed with high explosives into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the CIA, or the White House“.

 

Watch 9/11: A Conspiracy Theory

 

Project for the New American Century
While Americans were freely giving up many of their Constitutional rights in exchange for so-called “security” and now needing a scapegoat to rationalize their loss, President Bush moved to the next stage of the globalist New World Order agenda.

President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure ‘regime change’ long before the events of 9/11 and even before he took power in January 2001. Download and read the Rebuilding America’s Defences: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century document for yourself.

 

The Rebuilding America’s Defenses was written in September 2000, a year earlier than the 9/11 attack, by the neo-conservative think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC). Drawn up for Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and others, the New World Order plan shows Bush’s cabinet intended to take military control of the Gulf region whether … READ THE REST (The War on Terrorism; Website owner – Vic Bilson; Jeremiah Project; © 1996-2016 All Rights Reserved) [Blog Editor: Christian Conspiracy Theory Website]

Pope calls Abbas ‘angel of peace’ during Vatican visit


Pope Francis welcomes PA President Mahmoud Abbas 5-16-15


Francis made the compliment Saturday during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace “destroying the bad spirit of war.” – Times of Israel
 
On Friday I posted on Pope Francis legitimizing Islamic terrorists in recognizing the unity government of Hamas-Palestinian Authority (PA) as a sovereign nation named Palestine. Today the Times of Israel ran the story on Pope Francis greeting Mahmoud Abbas as an angel of peace that is “destroying the bad spirit of war.”
 
Islamic Terrorist Mahmoud Abbas
 
Born in March 1935, Mahmoud Abbas, commonly known as Abu Mazen, is a leading politician in Fatah. He served as Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority (PA) from March to October 2003. In January 2005 he was elected President of the PA.
 
 
Through the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s, Abbas travelled with Yasser Arafat and the rest of the PA leadership-in-exile to Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia. In 1966, after the pair had murdered a number of intelligence officers in Syria, they fled to Jordan. Four years later, after their effort to topple Jordan’s Hashemite regime sparked a brutal civil war, they were expelled to Lebanon. “By 1975,” writes Yoram Ettinger, former Minister for Congressional Affairs at Israel’s Embassy in Washington DC, “they had plundered large parts of southern Lebanon, attempting to overthrow the central regime in Beirut, which triggered the Syrian invasion of Lebanon, a series of civil wars and the destruction of Lebanon.”
 
 
“One of the extraordinary blind spots of contemporary Middle East history is the obsession of calling Mahmoud Abbas, whose nom de guerre or war name is Abu Mazen, a peace-loving moderate. … Abbas was not only Yasser Arafat’s deputy for 40 years, he also co-founded with him the terrorist group Fatah, masterminded the Munich massacre and wrote a PhD thesis and book denying the Holocaust.

Pope calls Abbas ‘angel of peace’ during Vatican visit
Francis meets with PA chief after Holy See’s decision to acknowledge Palestinian state angers Jerusalem
 
 

By AFP AND AP
May 16, 2015, 11:40 am
Updated: May 16, 2015, 1:51 pm
 
Pope Francis praised Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as an “angel of peace” during a meeting at the Vatican.
 
Francis made the compliment Saturday during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace “destroying the bad spirit of war.”
 
Francis said he thought the gift was appropriate since “you are an angel of peace.”
 
Abbas is in town for the canonization Sunday of two new saints from what was then Ottoman-ruled Palestine. It also comes days after the Vatican finalized a bilateral treaty with the “state of Palestine,” making explicit its recognition of Palestinian statehood.
 
Abbas, for his part, offered Francis relics of the two new saints.
 
The treaty, which was finalized Wednesday but still has to be signed, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.
 
A bilateral commission is putting the final touches to the agreement, on the Catholic Church’s life and activities in Palestine, which then “will be submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a debate in the near future for the signing,” the Vatican said on Wednesday.
 
Some observers speculated that the agreement could be signed during Abbas’s visit.
 
The news of the treaty immediately drew ire from Israel.
 
“Israel heard with disappointment the decision of the Holy See to agree a final formulation of an agreement with the Palestinians including the use of the term ‘Palestinian State’,” said an Israeli foreign ministry official.
 
“Such a development does not further the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct bilateral negotiations. Israel will study the agreement and consider its next step.”
 
The agreement, 15 years in the making, expresses the Vatican’s “hope for a solution to the Palestinian question and the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians according to the two-state solution,” Antoine Camilleri, the Holy See’s deputy foreign minister, said in an interview earlier this week.
 
In an interview with the Vatican’s Osservatore Romano newspaper, Camilleri said he hoped “the accord could, even in an indirect way, help the Palestinians in the establishment and recognition of an independent, sovereign and democratic State of Palestine.”
 
The Palestinian Authority considers the Vatican one of 136 countries to have recognized Palestine as a state, although the number is disputed and several recognitions by what are now European Union member states date back to the Soviet era.
 
Abbas’s visit came a day before two nuns who lived in Ottoman Palestine during the 19th century will be made saints at a Vatican ceremony.
 
Marie Alphonsine Ghattas of Jerusalem and Mariam Bawardy of Galilee will become the first Palestinian Arabs to gain sainthood.
 
Ghattas was born in Jerusalem in 1847, and died there in 1927. She was beatified — the final step before canonization — in 2009.
 
Bawardy was born in Galilee, now in northern Israel, in 1843. She became a nun in France and died in Bethlehem in 1878.
 
She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1983.
 
Although there are several saints who lived in the region during Christianity’s early days, Bawardy and Ghattas are the first to be canonized from Ottoman-era Palestine.
 
The canonization of a third Palestinian — a Salesian monk — is still under review by the Church.

Vatican Demonstrates Antisemitism

I am sure many of you politically savvy readers have already heard that the Vatican under Pope Francis’ leadership has recognized the Palestine Authority as a sovereign nation with full diplomatic relations.
 
I first found out about this from Breaking Christian News (BCN) which cross posted a partial article from Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) News.
 
I understand the Roman Catholic Church is more about the authority of Tradition than the authority of the Holy Bible as the Word of God, but come on! Throwing the Land of the Jews under the bus to a group of people whose sole reason to exist is to destroy Israel and murder Jews is either an idiotic act or an insane act:
 
Future: A world without Israel
The PA promises its people that in the future, the State of Israel will be completely erased and replaced by a State of Palestine. A Fatah member of Palestinian parliament, Najat Abu Bakr, told PA TV that the PA supports and adopts the “stages plan.” To the world, the PA claims that the Palestinians seek the West Bank and Gaza Strip, when in fact the goal is all of Israel: “It doesn’t mean that we don’t want the 1948 borders, but in our current political program we say we want a state on the 1967 borders.” [PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 25, 2008] (PA depicts a world without Israel; Palestine Media Watch)
 
And from for all intents and purposes an independent Hamas Islamic terrorist organization:
 
Vowing to destroy Israel, Hamas paraded some 2,000 of its armed fighters and truck-mounted rockets through Gaza on Sunday, marking its 27th anniversary with its biggest show of force since the end of the Gaza war this summer.
 
….
 
At the parade, a senior Hamas leader reaffirmed the Islamist movement’s founding charter’s pledge to destroy Israel.
 
“This illusion called Israel will be removed. It will be removed at the hands of the Qassam Brigades,” said Khalil al-Hayya, a top Hamas leader, referring to the movement’s armed wing.
 
 
Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007 from Fatah forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Both groups signed a unity deal in April but are divided over how to administer the Gaza Strip. (Hamas holds Gaza military parade, vows Israel’s destruction; By Nidal Al-Mughrabi; Reuters; 12/14/14 11:47am EST)

Vatican Officially Recognizes ‘State of Palestine’
 
CBN News Internet Producer – Jerusalem
May 14, 2015
 
JERUSALEM, Israel — Israeli leaders expressed disappointment with the Vatican’s decision to officially recognize a Palestinian state.
 
“This move does not promote the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct and bilateral negotiations,” Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded. “Israel will study the agreement and will consider its steps accordingly.”
 
One former Israeli diplomat told CBN News, “There was no need for the Vatican to jump ahead.”
 
“Given their record in World War II, they should be more careful,” he said. “The Vatican should show more responsibility and not interfere with the future of the Jewish people.”
 
Does this move by the Vatican mean the Catholic Church is taking sides against Israel? Dr. Paul Bonicelli, a professor of government at Regent University, addressed that question and more with CBN’s Efrem Graham. Click play to watch.
 

http://cbn.com/tv/embedplayernews.aspx?bcid=4236001591001

 
A statement released by the Vatican Wednesday said the decision “deals with essential aspects of the life and activity of the Catholic Church in Palestine.”
 
The treaty replaces the Palestine Liberation Organization as the address for its diplomatic interaction with the Palestinian Authority unity government, made up of Fatah in Ramallah and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
 
“We have recognized the state of Palestine ever since it was given recognition by the United Nations and it is already listed as the state of Palestine in our official yearbook,” Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said.
 
Pope Francis referred to Mahmoud Abbas as the president of the Palestinian state last year during his visit to Israel. The Pope will receive Abbas at the Vatican Saturday, a day before bestowing sainthood on two Arab nuns who lived during the Ottoman occupation.
 
Meanwhile, several American Jewish groups also expressed disappointment with the Pope’s decision. The American Jewish Committee called the move “counterproductive.”
 
“Formal Vatican recognition of Palestine, a state that, in reality, does not yet exist, is a regrettable move and is counterproductive to all who seek true peace between Israel and the Palestinians,” AJC Executive Director David Harris said.
 
“There is a reason why the U.S., the European Union and others have long agreed that statehood can only be achieved through direct, bilateral negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” he continued.
 
“Meanwhile, the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] is ruled by the Palestinian Authority, whose leader, Mahmoud Abbas, just marked the tenth anniversary of what was meant to be a four-year term, and Gaza is governed by Hamas, a terror organization. What and where exactly is the ‘State of Palestine’ today?” Harris queried.
 
“We are fully cognizant of the Pope’s good will and desire to be a voice for peaceful coexistence, which is best served, we believe, by encouraging a resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, rather than unilateral gestures outside the framework of the negotiating table,” Harris concluded.

What Vatican’s Move May Mean for Jerusalem’s Future
 
CBN News Middle East Bureau Chief
May 15, 2015
 
JERUSALEM, Israel — Critics say the Vatican’s decision to recognize a Palestinian state could have profound consequences for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and the future of Jerusalem.
 
In a new treaty, the Vatican switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine. Palestinian officials celebrated the decision.
 
“We are indeed extremely encouraged by the Vatican recognition of the state of Palestine. We also see this as a very positive development, not just politically but in moral terms, human terms, in legal terms, and it prepares for a whole new era in which Palestine will be seen by the whole world as a state,” senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said.
 
Israeli sources told CBN News they believe the Vatican’s decision will not lead the Palestinian Authority back to the negotiating table or promote the peace process. They plan to study the agreement and decide what possible steps to take.
 
Other groups like the Zionist Organization of America criticized the decision.
 
“Because what they are instructing the Palestinians is that they can accomplish their ends by being in violation of accords by pursuing unilateral accords as opposes to bilateral negotiations,” Jeff Daube, with the Zionist Organization of America, said.
 
Some say the historic diplomatic move puts the Vatican and Pope Francis in the position of supporting a corrupt and terrorist entity.
 
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is in the tenth year of a four-year term and he presides over a unity government that includes Hamas in the Gaza Strip, a terror organization sworn to Israel’s destruction.
 
The Palestinian Authority also sees Jerusalem as its future capital. That means most all of Jewish and Christian holy sites in the city would be in the hands of a Muslim Palestinian state.
 
The Vatican’s decision also adds to the diplomatic momentum to recognize a Palestinian state. The U.N. Security Council looks to be the next forum soon when France is expected to introduce a resolution to recognize a Palestinian state.
